Importance of Frames
- There exist two perspectives of frames. One is associated with screen resolution and the other is regarding compatibility with the speech software. It is generally noticed that the screen resolution of the computer at the designer's end is larger than that of the computer at the visitor's end. The factual truth about the use of frames is that it occupies some space on the monitor. This results in the reduction of the space for the content.
- Therefore, to overcome this, the designer should check the performance of the website on monitors with reduced resolution such as 640x468 and 800x600. In case, the frame fails to fit the monitor screen, the visitor needs to scroll horizontally for the content that is beyond the screen resolution. Matters take a turn for the worse when the web designer, presuming that the website is perfect, does not offer the facility of the scroll bar. This can really put off the visitor and stop future visits to the website.
Significance of Frames in Speech Software
- Also, the speech software is generally used by the visually impaired for knowing the content of the website. This software assists in giving voice to the words that are displayed on the monitor. But, if the content is going beyond the limits, it will not be recognized by the speech software. Moreover, the visually impaired are not in the capacity to know where the content is getting broken as it entails the use of vision. Therefore, inappropriate designing can nullify the whole cause of the speech software. Thus, it is advisable to plan and check the utility of frames before incorporating them into the final website design.
